Multiplayer, Hangmans Noose...on games were someone jumps into a vehicle and goes to get the helicopter and brings to the jet, why hasnt anyone set up an armored truck at the end of the jet?
Place the truck near the end of the grey ground where the jet is sitting on. That provides cover along with the baggage carts just beyond it. On games with four people, since you can only fit four into a vehicle, need to transport five total, the same person who sets up the truck can grab the motorcycle just around the east corner and high tail it back to the other helis.
Out of all the hours of game play I had yet to see this until I started doing it. Just so simple it's easy. And besides, you get full armor stepping out of the truck too.
When you have unlocked happiness island steal a helicopter from Helitours and fly to the top untill you get to the first square platform. Jump out of the Helicopter and then run around the platform untill you see a door that has a plaque on saying do not enter. Walk through the door and there is a ladder, go up it to the top and you will see a heart in chains.
If somebodies coming for you in a car, press square & L2, you do a barrel roll.
The mission where you get the opportunity to push the person off the building well, get a trophy & stop yourself from pushing him.
Mark on your radar Happiness Island which is the little island on your map, then, look around & you'll find the heart of liberty city near the statue.
Always make sure you have armor whilst on a mission or in Multiplayer, your health doesn't die so quickly then.
Just watch, you'll be amazed.
Anywhere you want to go on the map? Just mark a radar on & it will take you there! It's rather brilliant, I know. Works for online play too. Give it a go.
Method: Successfully complete all 30 of his vehicle thefts.
Special ability: The South Bohan garage will now offer money for any vehicle you deliver. The better the condition, the more money you will earn.
Whilst playing online, keep tapping the L1 button to shoot, don't spray that way you'll be a killer & you won't be killed.
If your car gets really dirty, mark the car wash on the radar of your map & it should lead you to the car wash.
If you have played the game to much then to have fun you can do a few things.
1. Fly really high in a helecopter and jump out (you should turn it to the right so you don't die from blades.)
2. Fly a helecopter to the the top of a building that is easy to drive a motorcycle off of or mabey a car if you like.
3. Find a long side walk that is easy to drive down in a car.
4. Go to the boardwalks and play a game I call chase the pedestrian and beat them to death with a baseball bat.
5. And finally if your really bored try to get six stars and survive as long as possible. The secret to get it without the tunnels is to drive fast and shoot the cops chasing you in the the head through the window of their car.
If you need help, or are stuck in a bad situation call 911. They will send an ambulance, police, firetruck to help you out.
On the final mission there is one of those bird things where you get out the car with Jacob.
If the engine of the vehicle you are driving will not start, call any number in your phone book and the engine should function properly.
The buttons you use for driving in this game are different than previous GTA games. Unless you go to options to change back to classic mode, but then there will be problems when cell calls come in, and being able to drive while listening to missions as well as other frustrations... It took me a little bit to get the hang of it and not do 180's around intersections, curves and get it to a point where I felt comfortable taking a quick turn and not planning ahead on which object would be easier to crash into.
For starters get use to using your middle finger for the R2 (accelerate), and your index for the R1 (e-brake).
This is critical and wont take long to adjust to. When you are approaching a turn you want to use the e-brake but DON'T release acceleration while turning. Hold both down simultaneously but release the e-brake quickly. It will take some practice, and depending on the car and it's handling, will determine how long to hold the e-brake before you release around a turn. Cars like the sabre and dukes wont need much to swing the back end out.
Typically I find for the majority of cars holding the e-brake down just for a quick second while turning will work fine. If your going really fast you will need to brake using the L2 button a little bit before using the e-brake method. It'll take some practice but after a while it'll all become instinct.
This is a whole 'nother area that will take some time to get use to. Especially if you use the SIXAXIS. This method applies to both but I'm just going to explain L3 stick and controls. Really you don't need to use the e-brake. Typically you'll just go 90 degrees and stop short or crash.
The way the L3 stick works is you transfer weight to the back of the bike pulling back on the L3 button. And forward when pushing forward useful for stoppies and wheelies, but can be used to help a lot with cornering.
For example while taking a left turn, you don't want to just pull the stick down and left because you'll be putting your weight on the back tire and will under steer. You wont be able to turn and crash.
Instead put the weight on the front of the bike by pulling the analog stick left and up at an angle. You will whip the back end out. Now to balance out instead of just turning in the opposite direction, transfer the weight more to the back by pulling a little down in the same direction.
It's really a balancing act between the different amounts of weight you put on the front and rear during left and right turns. If a turn isn't that sharp, left and down will work fine, really sharp left and up, basically. It's really fun riding the bikes in this game once you get this down.
First of all find a hummer/patriot or other large vehicle like the ambulance. Then drive it to the hospital in Schottler. Park it in between the door so no one can get out or in. Make the people run like crazy into the hallway to the right of the entrance. Okay, now make sure you do this with the knife. Stab them so the bars in the auto lock thing dissapear and they should be rolling around on the ground. DO NOT stab them once they are rolling around!!!!!! Once you have the desired ammount of people in the hallway run back into the waiting room around the back pillar type thing then go back to the hall where you stabbed the people and the money should be respawned. Do this lap as many times as like or until you die of boredom. As long as the people are rolling around on the floor then the money should keep respawning. I don't know if anyone else has found this out and really don't care, but I found it out on accident.
Need some healing hands or some cheep entertanment durning daytime, but you can't seem to find some anywhere? Well look around the triangle club in northern gardens for some healing hands, for a fare price.
Too turn off the car, truck, boat, or chopper you are curnetly driving, press (triangle) while holding down (x).
Go to the superstar cafe at the triangle on the corner of iron st. And denver-exeter ave. Go on the west side on the superstar cafe and look at the sign above. You'll see the words "super star cafe starring.. The mighty.. Love Fist." (note:Love Fist in a 80's rock band on vice city.)
